Another Favorite Home Biz Notes Post - Little Acts of Kindness
Acts of Kindness Have Far Reaching Effects in Business and Life is another of my favorite post here, although I forgot to list it in 5 of My Favorite Posts at Home Biz Notes.
In Acts of Kindness, I discussed how author/illustrator Tasha Tudor’s kindness to an aspiring writer has had an effect all my life. Alicia, of Mental Health Notes, left a comment, I always go blank when asked questions like this. I know there have been plenty of kind acts that’ve inspired me, but I can’t seem to think of a single one!
To which I replied: Sometimes we realize the inspiration as the years go by, Alicia. My visit with Tasha Tudor was enjoyable, exciting, and encouraging at the time. It’s been as the years go by that I realize the longer lasting effects on my life. When I learned of Ms. Tudor’s death this summer, my thoughts about her act of kindness to an aspiring author crystalized. I only hope, somehow, that she knows how she influenced my life and others.
Have you had someone make an impression on you, in your life or business, that you never forgot? It didn’t have to be something spectacular at the time, but some act or event that grew in influence as you gained more insight and experience.
Remember this when you’re responding to people, when you have opportunities to affect their lives. How do you want to be remembered?
